NFL Football Crime Stats – Average Arrest is every five days


Here is my ode to the Super Bowl. Frankly, I have lost most of my interest in football since it has become just one more PC event. Maybe if my Eagles had made it back I could have found the latest gladiator extravaganza interesting.  So find your latest team, favorite player, and find his criminal record. The site says:

NFL Arrest provides an interactive visualized database of National Football League player Arrests & Charges. Learn about your rival team’s history with the law, break down arrests by Player, Position, Crime and Team. Link here Arrests 

While the caveat is claimed on the website that the crime rate is lower than the National average, keep in mind, almost all are millionaires and beyond. And the crimes? Well you can look. Here is the latest: 5 days ago.

The Detroit Lions Trevor Bates was arrested for assault after allegedly refusing to pay a $32 cab fare in New York, and then punched an officer in the face.


Maybe these facts represent why the NFL players find rules hard to follow and a chip on their shoulder for being arrested by the police.

The National Football League is in a golden age right now: It’s been 5 days since one of its players has been arrested. Update: Here is the handy-dandy arrest chart  NFL Arrests

The average time between arrests is just seven days, while the record without an arrest is slightly more than two months, at 65 days, according to Arrests 

Players get arrested for a variety of crimes: drunk driving, drug offenses, domestic violence, assault and battery, gun violations, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, theft, burglary, rape and even murder.

The NFL virtually embraces players who abuse women. Take this report in the Chicago Tribune: “In the first round [of the 2017 draft], the Oakland Raiders drafted Gareon Conley, who has been accused of rape. In the second round, the Cincinnati Bengals selected Joe Mixon, who in a much-viewed video punches a woman so hard that she falls down unconscious. In the sixth round, the Cleveland Browns selected Caleb Brantley, who was accused of doing pretty much what Mixon did.”

The most arrests: Adam Jones, with 10. Jones has played for both Tennessee and Cincinnati, and he’s been accused of poking a hotel worker in the eye, punching a woman, spitting in a woman’s face at a nightclub, and was “charged with felony coercion in connection to strip club shooting that paralyzed a man” (take a look at all his arrests here).

The top positions of those arrested:

  • Wide receiver – 140
  • Linebacker – 119
  • Cornerback – 116
  • Running back – 99
  • Defensive tackle – 80

    Halftime shows are almost always hip hop trash. Been that way for as long as I can remember with a few exceptions.
    Halftime is tune out, get drinks and food and chat with people.

    Better yet ignore the entire circus. I did..

    Yeah well, I was going to be a jock, but in the spring game being a B-team halfback catching a halfback pass, my ill-fitting second team uniform pants got pulled down around my ankles when tackled. Stands cheered and that was my last play. 🙂

    Well, let me see if I can work this recipe out in my mind as I doddle on this here scratch pad. We begin with two eggs out of wedlock, subtract one parent, add several years of oppression myth brainwashing, toss in five or six similarly fostered testosterone-driven flat liners, ignore any semblance of formal education whilst the product participates in the high school football team, hand off a graduation certificate (even though the clutter-head can’t read it), offer him a four year college scholarship where he can play big-time football and major in Kamunicashun, hand off a Heisman’s trophy, dump several hundred thousands of dollars into his lap in the first year (making drugs and alcohol available on demand), and put him in a place where the barely adult female spawn flutter to have his baby. Yeah … I’ll watch football again when Nancy Pelosi becomes an evangelical.
